|Province does indeed fund pheasant release program|
In Bob Scammell’s recent column in the Brooks Bulletin he said,”the province is no longer planting hatchery birds for shooters….”.
The province though the A.C.A. has put $300K+ into a pheasant release program for Southern Alberta! Over 15,000 birds from MacFarlene in Wisconsin will have been released before the end of the season! The A.C.A. has over 50 sites in Southern Alberta all the way from Camrose in the north to Medicine Hat and Taber in the south that get releases every week.
